This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
our heap space starts kinda small, however when more memory is used or when we bring it to the max and create an outofmemory exception (or without the exception just to the max) then when the used memory drops the size does not drop with it.
this is incredible cubersome for a VM farm with many java servers
is there any way or setting to make the size shrink back to the minimum (-Xms256m) after it is not used anymore?
having this ability would make my sysadmins happy, and my too, since i would get more mem per server from them.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
